That’s the thing about depression: A human being can survive almost anything, as long as she sees the end in sight. But depression is so insidious, and it compounds daily, that it’s impossible to ever see the end. The fog is like a cage without a key—Elizabeth Wurtzel
This time we are giving tribute to a poet called Miracle Nantege.
She was a poet who succumbed to depression by committing suicide when the burden of self was too much to bear.
She was a special poet.
Many of us feel helpless and abandoned by an impersonal world.
This leads to depression, something that robs us of the ability to construct a future.
This is a huge concern to us all.
Please join us as we poetically combat this scourge as well as recall a poet gone too soon.
Here we are again..for Miracle Nantege…to write our hearts out like she performed hers.To remember to speak,when the world tries to quiet us down. This is Spoken War On Depression #SpeakOut Book your early bird ticket before end of today here: https://goo.gl/fkpqNv
